Super Mario Bros U's Boost Mode detailed

New Super Mario Bros U's Boost Mode has been detailed.

Yesterday we revealed that the game will include at least seven worlds and a new mode. Well, today that mode has been detailed, with the main aim of its existence being to challenge experienced players.

Boost Rush sees you play through a selection of levels but rather than attempting to collect as many coins as you can within a time limit, you'll instead be trying to collect the coins while trying to keep up with scrolling levels.

You will have more than one life during boost mode, however when you collect coins the level will scroll even faster, making things all the more tricky.

Game Informer also reports on a multiplayer mode called Boost mode. In this mode, you need to turn on the Wii U GamePad to start it up. Then the GamePad player can start placing blocks - four at a time, with the other player having the aim of hitting the top of the flagpole.

In addition to helping players by placing blocks, the GamePad player can save those who have lost a life by tapping the touchscreen to pop the bubbles they are floating.

ONM, which reports this news, also adds that the player using the Wii U conroller can also stun enemies, swat paratroopas and manipulate the environment.

Sounds interesting.

This sounds quite fun actually - add something new to the standard Mario game!

Sounds interesting, though for me personally it sounds like a nightmare. I hate being chased in games (I'd imagine I'd also hate being chased outside of games, but luckily that hasn't happened) I can't take the panic and the pressure!

I love all Mario games regardless, but I like these new modes they're adding to mix things up a little bit, this Boost Rush, and the Coin Rush from NSMB2. They seem to be the most popular parts of the game as well.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
